Biography

The Neighbourhood are an American alternative rock/dark pop band that formed in Newbury Park, California in August 2011. The band consists of Jesse Rutherford, Riff Raff, Jeremy Freedman, Zach Abels and Mikey Margott. Bryan Sammis (drums) left the group in January, 2014.

The band released their first EP, I’m Sorry… in January 2013, where their single Sweater Weather reached #1 on the U.S. Alternative Tracks and #8 on the U.S. Rock Tracks and #33 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song also charted at #68 in Canada. Their first album, I Love You. was released on April 23, 2013.

In early 2012 a mysterious band appeared online. The group, The Neighbourhood, revealed no biographical information, no photos and no backstory, offering only a moody track titled “Female Robbery.” Fans and the press were confounded, scouring the Internet for any information that might lead them to the identity of these musicians. Pieces of the puzzle, some reflecting reality and some not so much, began to emerge. The Neighbourhood were a quintet. They were from California despite the British spelling of their name. They had a second track, “Sweater Weather,” which had an accompanying — and equally dark — video.

Although The Neighbourhood’s identity remained hazy, it became clear that the music they were making felt transformative to critics and fans alike. The evocative combination of rock instruments with R&B and hip-hop aesthetics seemed, in many ways, revelatory, a reimagining of sounds that seemed to make people clamor for more information with even greater fervor.

    Also had other very young girls touching all over him. At least my friends and I know what this group is about now. Several people left because of it. And yes the little girl looked 13. My girlfriend asked her what her age was and she said I just turned 13 today.

    Seen them in Tulsa Oklahoma. Watched a 13 year old go on stage and the lead singer allowed the "13" year old girl to pretend to give him head and allowed her to rub/grope his privates. No longer like the band :/ what I witnessed was enough to leave the concert.
